I just finished putting together my first single speed and it is riding ok except for 2 bent spokes on the front wheel and the chain line issue that I want to address. Here are pictures from the front and rear if they help:
I've ridden it around the neighborhood and ridden it up a few steep hills but the chain stays right on. It's when I start to speed or crank up a hill at speed that it derails inwards. So far I have not redished the wheel because I managed to prevent it from touching the chainstay by flipping the axle assembly then moving the axle slightly to the right.
I thought I'd go to the bike shop to get the wheel redished till I noticed that I'm using the original 3/32" 40t chainring and a shimano freewheel that was sold to me as a 3/32" cog that is compatible with both 3/32" and 1/8" chains. I can move the chain side to side on both the chainring and cog very easily and I'm wondering if this is the reason why the chain keeps derailing. Would a 3/32" chain solve this problem?
